We support a workplace where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other (LGBT+) solvers can bring their best selves to work and feel the full support of their PwC family. To foster this environment, we are working to grow LGBT+ equality and accelerate change, within PwC and in the wider world.
Acceptance and respect for the LGBT+ community varies greatly across the world. While we respect the laws of every country where we operate, we do not tolerate discrimination on any grounds – including sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. In fact, we believe in going further to actively value differences as illustrated through our global human rights statement and Global Code of Conduct. In response to the legal and social landscape for LGBT+ people in different territories, we have intentionally built our Global LGBT+ Inclusion strategy to include four cultural scenarios that allows us to adapt the ways we advocate and support.
Shine is PwC's LGBT+ community and ally inclusion network. Our Shine inclusion networks celebrate the many ways our LGBT+ colleagues make our workplace culture stronger.
Shine fosters a welcoming atmosphere and demonstrates value and care for the LGBT+ community. With a focus on psychological safety and inclusive leadership and teamwork, Shine helps our people be their authentic selves and do their best work. Shine is about creating opportunities and fostering advocacy and allyship.
Through Shine, we create opportunities for our people and for our business by delivering against four global objectives: the attraction of LGBT+ talent, education and awareness, community impact and business development.
Shine is growing brighter each year. Currently there are 33 Shine networks around the world, up from nine in 2016.
